SYD MEGA INCENTIVE
MORE than 6,500 of Asia’s top performers from beauty company Jeunesse Global arrived in Sydney last week to enjoy a six-day 2018 Lifestyle Rewards incentive trip.
The event, secured by Business Events Sydney, is the largest corporate incentive group ever to visit during the city’s Vivid festival, and contributed around $40 million to the State’s economy.
As well as enjoying the sights of Vivid, guests at the multi-day event were invited to climb the Harbour Bridge in another record-breaking effort, before paying a visit to the Port Stephens area.
The event also included two gala dinners hosted at Sydney Olympic Park’s The Dome, which showcased the ability of the event space to cater for “events on a grand scale” with more than 400 staff serving up 19,800 canapes, 20,000 prawns and 1,320kg of fish.
BESydney ceo Lyn Lewis-Smith said the record-breaking event was vital to the local visitor economy, and “created a valuable opportunity to further strengthen ties with our friends in Asia”.
MEANWHILE, BESydney has welcomed Carolin Lenehan as deputy general mgr, corporate affairs & communication.
